What is the difference between insurance reinstatement and insurance renewal?

Reinstatement means the policy LAPSED and is now back in force. Renewal just means you paid the regular bill on time. Renewal is when the company offers to RENEW, or CONTINUE, your insurance policy for another 6 or 12 months. REINSTATEMENT is totally different: Reinstatement means that your policy is being put back in force by the company after it had cancelled for non premium payment. The main difference between the two is this: With a reinstatement, you will not have had any coverage during the time from when the policy cancelled, to when it is reinstated. If you had an accident or claim during that time, you would NOT have any coverage. Also, if you had been driving during that time you would have been driving illegally, if your state requires mandatory insurance.
